I was so excited to work with Abbi again this year! She won an Instragram contest for a mini shoot last spring so it was way fun to catch up with her! Abbi chose the Luxe session for her senior portraits, which meant we had more time to shoot and that Keegan of Steele the Spotlight was along for the shoot to change up Abbi's hair and makeup. The Luxe session makes you feel like a celebrity! I always strive to make sure you are having a fantastic time and making memories to last a lifetime. Having Keegan there to make sure there isn't a hair out of place and that your lipstick is always fresh takes your senior portrait experience to the next level! How about a little from Abbi's perspective :)
What are three words you would use to describe yourself?
Bubbly, Outgoing, and Generous
What are your plans for after high school graduation?
After high school graduation my plan is to go to college at University of Wyoming and become a BSN. I've always been the person that helps people when they need it, so being a nurse is something I would love to do!
How was your overall senior photo session experience?
The overall experience was a BLAST! Kate is so great and she makes you feel so comfortable while taking your pictures. You have so much fun that you can't stop smiling and laughing which makes taking the pictures a breeze!
How did you feel about the hair and make up experience?
The hair and make up experience was great! Keegan is by far the best! She made me feel so confident and so beautiful through out the whole shoot! Plus my make up and hair lasted the entire time. She is so sweet and hilarious and INCREDIBLE at what she does.
What's one piece of advice you have for other seniors getting their picture taken?
Advice I have is BE YOU. Pick outfits that relate to your personality and style. Smile, relax, and just have fun! :)
How many outfits did you bring and was it enough? Was it too much? Anything you'd change?
I brought 6 outfits and only used 5 for my shoot, and I think it was exactly enough. You never know if you're going to change your mind last minute and it's always great to have a back up!
How did you choose to accessorize your outfits?
I don't normally accessorize my outfits on the daily expect for occasionally wearing earrings, but I think for the shoot it is a great idea to "dress up" your outfits by adding some rings, earrings, necklaces, or bracelets. I chose mine by picking my outfits first then seeing what matched best with what. Then trying it all on to get the full effect of the look.
If you chose our session location, tell me why you chose that place. Did you like the location?
I really wanted to do an outdoor/nature location for my country chic look, and of course Kate nailed it and brought me to a beautiful pond with a gravel road and green trees, that completely made the image in my head come to life!
How would you advise someone else to prepare for a senior photo session?
I would advise you to have your outfits completely prepared before the session... all the way down to the shoes you're going to wear. Also by getting enough sleep the night before, so you look nice and refreshed :)
